Arena Party

The day before we embarked on our big Canadian adventure there was a big soiree at the arena marking the 10th anniversary. They were offering free food and skating (say no more!), so naturally we were going to check it out. Plus, now that we’re hockey obsessed, it’s not often that we skate just for the fun of it. The kids enjoy it mainly when other kids are around and they can get crazy and show off, and even I get weary of just going in circles. I need to be more Zen about it, don’t I?

The party was on a Friday night, so getting people to come was going to be a bit of a challenge. They advertised it and I sent out some messages, and in the end, the crowd was pretty good. We saw lots of people we knew, and there was a huge contingent of hockey players, many of whom are in the teenage boy/girl range, so there was a surplus of energy trying to impress each other out there.

A and N got to hang with their hockey buddies and skate their hearts out, and R and I got to get free pizza and do some leisurely skating, which is not something we do very often. It was fun, and they had some cake and a good time was had by all. Best of all, I didn’t have to cook supper. Say no more.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Choo Yut Shing for the pic.
